Hi there. Welcome to my blog where I keep a record of my sewing projects.
I love to sew and have been sewing and crocheting since I was a young girl. I was taught both crafts by my grandmother, and I consider it a great gift that these skills were passed down to me.
I love to create clothes that reflect my personal style and find great satisfaction in the way sewing combines both creative and technical skills. It is the perfect “whole brain” activity.
I sew mainly for myself, sometimes for my two daughters and very rarely for others, and only for joy.
I am Australian and live in the suburbs of Sydney.
I sew with a Janome QC6260 and I have a basic model Janome overlocker/serger.
Height: 5’4″ / 163cm
Age: Late 40’s.
Body Type: Pear. Slightly short waisted (bust to waist measurement), slightly long rise (waist to hip measurement).
My style is classic and feminine with strong vintage influences.
My usual alterations are –
- Forward shoulder, narrow shoulder, sloping shoulder (summed up by saying the no-shoulders adjustment),
- Grading between sizes, especially from waist to hips.
- Adjust for gaping at the neckline front and back.
- Despite being an A cup, I don’t always need a small bust adjustment (SBA) as due to very small shoulders I can size down in the bodice which often does the trick for the bust fit as well.
- Sway back alteration
